I love metal characters, but I absolutely hate any of the large metal stuff. I've never (successfully) done pinning, so it was always a massive problem trying to glue the monsters or machines together. Even with good glue it would take forever and frequently break. I also much prefer plastic for the troops. Maybe not the special choices, I far prefer the metal ironbreakers or greatswords to the plastic.

Impressive indeed! I like the way we're seeing a few brief appearances from older members. Lurkers and otherwise!
I knew the love triangle bit was a late addition. it certainly feels like it to me. The second video does sound interesting though. Maybe I'll put it on this afternoon and podcast it while I'm working.

Although the third video also seems strangely fascinating. Not something I would have thought I cared about.

Absolutely started humming the music while reading that. I had the same strip as my desktop background for ages at one point.

Well since my last update I have not touched anything. Not a thing. I'm either constantly waiting for the weather to clear up enough to let me spray paint, or on the good days I end up running around madly doing errands. My paints and models are just waiting on the table. Watching me. Always watching me, and judging...

I agree the Chaos Chariot is probably closest to what this would do on the charge.

I do realise there will be many lines of weapons on the warscoll, if the Hook Halberd is on there, but it should be better than a sword.  A normal halberd is s 4+, 4+ -1 1D.  If there was a CAVALRY keyword, i'd also give it bonus of maybe re-roll 1's to wound against CAVALRY, but there isn't a keyword for the unit type for infantry, cavalry etc.   I suppose you could give the Halberd the same profile and effect as the ball and chain to make it simpler.

I don't think there should be any swords on the attack profile though, none of the old models had one.  Perhaps's call it Engineer’s Telescope or Tools, as per the gunmaster, and it would be 3 attacks (4 with a gunmaster), as 3 of the crew would use the special melee weapons instead

I do get the reason for missing simplifying though, to not have as many weapon profiles, but the Arkanaut Ironclad for the Karadron Overloads has a lot of them, so it's not like there aren't other examples out there. 

Instead of taking "Steady Aim" from the freeguild handgunners warscroll, use the "Expert Gunners" from the Freeguild Outriders warscroll.  In the old 4th ed of WFB Outriders were minor engineers with experimental weapons like the repeater guns, and the crew of the war wagon would be the same thing - low rank engineers /gunmasters.   It's essentially the same rule anyway, but slightly more accurate to the background.

The war wagon with gunmaster  would have 2 shots with the long rifle anyway, As both he and one of the war wagon crew would have one.

As for damage tables, most war machines only have 2 columns instead of 3.  I can't find any other examples with just 1, but I haven't checked that many.  I don't think it would be a problem if it just affected the movement of the Von Zeppel or the war wagons.

I still would increase the wounds to 11 for the wagon, and make it a behemoth, as some damage thrown it's way would hit the vehicle itself.  the Luminark and Hurricanum don't have 2 horses and 7 crew to make 11.   And the protection a Luminark gives a wizard doesn't affect his bravery

After all that i've said, if you're happy with it, and so is your opponent, that's all that matters in the end.  I'm only putting suggestions.

Please don't sell them 023! Great collection...

Wow they look awesome   :::cheers:::  When will these get released or when does the kickstarter start?

Kickstarter was funded years ago, they are still sending the miniatures. Yeah it sounds awkward; I didn't participate, but I've bought Spartans and Amazons from their online store and can assure their stuff is f***king amazing!

And where's that human figure in the middle come from :icon_question:

From the same company, Crocodile Miniatures.

This always brings back nostalgia of being a young 20 something and having such a positive outlook on the world.  Felt I should share it again.


XKCD even did their own version:
